Every practitioner is an officer of the court. Practitioners are required to act with honesty and integrity, whether in litigious matters or commercial transactions. Practitioners must never misrepresent, mislead or deceive in any way. Practitioners must promptly correct statements which are false, inaccurate, misleading or deceptive once they come to a practitioner’s attention. These ethical obligations extend to all courts and tribunals, other practitioners, governmental authorities and members of the public.
